Lucile Cypriano will race with JSB Compétition at Valencia

Lucile Cypriano will become the first female racer in the TCR International Series at next weekend’s round at Valencia, with the 18-year-old entered in a SEAT León Cup Racer by the JSB Compétition team.

Cypriano will first compete this weekend in the opening round of the SEAT León Eurocup at Le Castellet, before turning her attention to her International Series debut next weekend.

“I will start thinking about the TCR on Monday,” she said, “and probably I will stress a bit. It’s a very high-level competition and everything will be new to me: the track, the tyres and the vast majority of my rivals.”
